The Top Three Areas Small Businesses Need Trademark Support
1. BUSINESS NAME REGISTRATION
Entrepreneurs often think LLCs and DBA/FBN statements keep their names from being violated and that they are not violating others. This is not accurate. Setting up an LLC or a Doing Business As Statement does not equal trademark protection.

You neglect, however, to federally register your business’s name. Imagine going to Las Vegas and finding a year-old restaurant with the same name as your business in neon lights. Without federal trademark protection, you are limited when it comes to enforcement and protection, meaning there’s little you could do to stop the Vegas pub from using your name. Another hard scenario is what to do if you start a business using a name that was already trademarked by another organization.
